Sheriff Bill Gore wants to stress to the people of San Marcos why it’s critical for those evacuated to stay away from their homes during the fire. 

“There’s very specific protocol we go through especially when we’ve had structural damage like we’ve had in San Marcos,” said Sheriff Gore. “We go in with the utility companies to make sure that everything is up and running, so we’re not creating any safety hazards for people repopulating those areas.” 

Sheriff Gore thanks to the people of San Marcos for their patience and cooperation. 

“We’re aware of everybody’s concern. They want to get back home. We’re working to close protocols as fast as we can.”
